We considered calling this a Style 180 but we all agreed that Taylor Swift has had this sophisitcated style in her since she first burst onto the scene.
Yes, the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer can typically be seen in short shorts, flat shoes and fairy princess ballgowns, but she's rocked a similarly mature cocktail dress once or twice before. We're just pretty sure it's never been this completely covered-up!
Not only is this dress way longer than "mini skirt" territory, but the sheer long sleeves extend the lack of skin exposure. We love the slight attempt at sexy up top thanks to the criss-cross bodice, but not an inch of inappropriate skin is showing. Plus, this deep cranberry is definitely the color of a woman, not a girl.
Foot covering booties and simple long locks complete the very adult attire. All in all, we don't hate it. We just think Tay-Tay might want to consider handing it up to someone like Sigourney Weaver when she's done.
